NEU Strike Action 15th & 16th March
Re: Strike action
I’m getting in touch to give you as much notice as possible that the school will be closed to pupils on Wednesday 15th & Thursday 16th March 2023.
I am writing to outline our school’s response to the proposed industrial strike action.
We have been continuing to review the situation and I can confirm that the school has taken all reasonable steps to try to keep the school open to pupils. Staff are not required to tell us in advance if they will be on strike. Any plans must ensure that we can safeguard all pupils on site, and ensure the health and safety of pupils and employees.
Following our risk assessments, we will be closing the school for pupils on the 15th & 16th March for two days.
The NEU has indicated that they will continue strike action following the initial strike on Wed 15th & Thurs 16th March. We recommend that you start to make alternative childcare arrangements for these dates. We are working closely with our staff union representatives to keep up to date with the situation, and I will inform you of any further arrangements or changes as soon as possible.
Any pupils eligible for Free school meals will be provided with a voucher for these days. School will organise this and contact parents accordingly.
Our school website has been updated to provide a wide range of home learning resources and activities which parents and pupils can access https://www.therosehillschool.com/home-learning-remote-education/
I’m sorry about the disruption this may have caused, and ask that all members of our school community continue to treat each other with respect. Rosehill School remains committed to providing a safe and secure environment for our pupils and delivering high-quality teaching.
If you have any questions, please contact the school through our main office.
As ever, thank you for your continued support and cooperation.
